WM5100W Washing Machine went through complete cycle as normal and completed ok, removed laundry and refilled drum with another load. Pressed start, wash light illuminated. Nothing started, no sound, no clicks, no water input, no drum cycle. press start/pause and pause light flashes, press again and it goes off. Press Pause light for 3 seconds and spin/end light illuminates but then does nothing.

Turned power off, held start/pause turned on, it enters test mode with ready light off, wash light flashing and spin/end light on solid. Cannot perform any other test, ie move selector to another program and press start does nothing. Turn off and on again returns the ready light as if its ready to start. At any point in the above the door is never locked and can be opened.

I've emptied the filter/pump not a lot there, two coins. no water in the drum. Im going around in circles.

However, an answer of what error code is indicating when in test mode would help (ready light off, wash light flashing and spin/end light on solid).

Thanks in advance

If the wash light is flashing it could be indicating "no heat". Try holding start for 5 seconds to reset error code. (lights flashing on washing machine)
